What should I do in case of monthly bleeding that comes too often, or bleeding at other times?
Something may be wrong if monthly bleeding comes more often than every 3 weeks, or if it comes and goes without a regular pattern.
- The ovary may not have released an egg.
- There may be growths (fibroids or polyps) or cancer in the womb, especially if monthly bleeding is heavy and not regular.
- Taking the medicine called estrogen after menopause.
- Some family planning methods - like the pill, implants, and injections - can cause you to bleed more often.
